One of my favorite materials for home decor and kitchenware is ceramic/stoneware/pottery. The thing is, I’m no ceramic artist. Hence my appreciation for it.
Since I love old stuff I’m naturally drawn to vintage ceramics. Today I’m sharing this vintage drip glaze ceramic chalice. 👍
Even though I have an affinity for pottery, I don’t take everything home with me. I’m choosy. I’ve got to like the shape of the thing. I’ve got to like the feel of it. The colors have to be right. Like with most things I curate, it’s got to be in fair to excellent condition and have the ability to be used again in some way.
When I picked this one up, I liked the shape. A chalice cup or goblet has this ceremonial vibe to it. It feels noble in some way. I thought it could make an ordinary thing like drinking a beverage feel novel and fun.
Once I brought it home it seemed like the thing wanted to hold a plant! Here it is being pictured as a vintage drip glaze ceramic chalice succulent planter.
Then I went a little crazy with some nature inspiration … 🙃
I love nature and have lots of outdoor nature elements in my home. I enjoy bringing in the feeling of nature inside, even though I don’t consider myself a plant person. Succulent plants are easy to care for and I love how they are drought resistant and can be inside and outside. Also, the fairy energies that I have around and in my home appreciate these little things!
I think this pottery piece is perfect for someone who would love to create a succulent arrangement of their own. Finding the right container for your creative project is a big part. Lots of succulent planters are glass. Glass has a lovely look, but personally I think ceramic is more earthy and has got a hippie/bohemian vibe. I guess in a way, it’s more personal and therefore more unique.
Until next time … and remember it’s the little things in life!
